Kybella is a new FDA-approved treatment for neck fat removal. The deoxycholic acid formulation is administered by injection for the purpose of dissolving moderate to severe subcutaneous neck fat under the chin. Kybella is a nonsurgical alternative to neck liposuction. This treatment is for adults over the age if 18, and clinical trials have proven that the injections can dramatically reduce the frontal and profile appearance of a double chin.
Each Kybella treatment should take no more than 15 minutes. Optimal Kybella results should be seen after two or three weeks of treatment. Between 3 – 6 treatments are recommended depending upon the magnitude of the problem. These treatments will be spaced one month apart.
The treatment is akin to a series of pin pricks, but for those who are sensitive to injections, a minute amount of lidocaine can be added to temporarily numb the area. After the treatment, patients will see ongoing results as the injected deoxycholic acid breaks down stored fat, which is then naturally eliminated by the body.
Some patients experience minor bruising, swelling, and pain at the injection sites, but that will resolve within a day or two at most.
Kybella is identical to something the body makes called deoxycholic acid, which helps breakdown fat so that it can be eliminated. The series of shots are an alternative to surgical liposuction for the treatment of “ adouble chin” and “neck fat”. When injected into the fat beneath one’s chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells can never again store or accumulate fat.
Having a double chin is a very common condition that detracts from one’s appearance by presenting a profile that is devoid of chin-neck definition. Over 80% of those with double chins say the condition is a matter of concern. Hence, there has long been a demand for a non-surgical, recovery-free, and more affordable alternative to liposuction. Kybella is a non-surgical solution that has been proven very effective.
The most common side effects are bruising, swelling, minor pain, numbness, and small, firm areas around the injection sites. All these side effects will resolve within 1 -2 days.
Kybella’s fat elimination capability can be combined with Radio Frequency and Venus Legacy treatments to provide the added benefit of skin tightening when a more sculpted result is desired.
